from california, former undersecretary of state for arms control and international security, and david winston, republican strategist. welcome, david and ellen, it seems from all accounts, that it's very, very unlikely that the house is going to change hands, the senate is still in play. but there are a lot of interesting races out there. david, first of all, right now mitt romney around virginia with george alan at his side, a close race with tim kaine, two former governors running against each other and george alan running for his former senate seat. we're hearing it is tim kaine marginally ahead but close to 50/50 race. >> this is a close race. this fizz republicans are going to pick up majority one of the key states where the opportunity lies having said that, when you've soon a lot of the survey, surveys seem to have it even or slight edge to governor kaine. one of the problems that we're all trying to work through here is, so what is this electorate going to look like? in virginia an interesting mix of different types of voters and in terms of independents, african-americans that
nearly 3.5 million people have cast their election lot. texas is second, california ranking third, trailing texas by just about 15,000 close votes. >> the fate of human dignity in our hands. blood's been spilt to afford us this moment. now, now, now! >> daniel day lewis from the upcoming movie "lincoln" portraying arguably the most popular and influential president ever. the latest cinematic blockbuster of steven spielberg. we take note steven spielberg and wife kate cap shaw have donated almost $1.3 million. bill maher and morgan freeman both giving about $1 million to that same obama superpac. as far as congressional contributions, california democrat howard berman has received almost $425,000 either directly or through a super pac. when we last saw berman he was taking part in the debate. that is a congressman on the left. things got a little bit nasty there by the way. polls are showing berman losing his battle to remain in congress. those are your number once. live from democracy plaza here on weekends with alex witt. and if you stumble, you get back up. up isn't easy, and we
is not going to go down the cliff, they're going to go down the drain. host: that was howard in california. danny says the reason we have a spending problem is because the rich investor class has created a low wage for free trade. host: here are some tweets we've been receiving on this issue. joseph says spending cuts have to be on the table, ending bush tax cuts for those earning over $250,000 is a start. aalways cut what hurts the most people blame the other side. it seems republicans are under the assumption they won this past election. they did not, the people support the president's plan. bruce is an independent in new york. bruce, good morning, you're on the "washington journal." caller: good morning. i'm a landlord and i'm a small landlord, but i rent to section 8 people and social services, and for the love of me i can't figure out is how a person has to go to work and rent because he can't afford an apartment so he rents a room, he pays maybe $100 a week. well, we have people who do not who get a one bedroom apartment for $900, ok? but here's how we save. if we took and bought a f
of the northeast, it's now a recovery mission. and yesterday california military planes were loaded with utility vehicles ready to be shipped into new york. an army of some 50,000 utility workers from across the country, even canada, being deployed to the region to help in the massive project to restore power which will take weeks. three navy warships are anchored off the northeast coast to help with the relief effort. in new jersey, military trucks are being deployed to operate as polling places on election day in the hardest-hit communities still remain without power. now, the good news does trickle out slowly. today amtrak will begin offering limited service between new york city and boston. and new jersey transit will also start moving today with limited service. the new york subway system continues to make advances. the "m" train linking queens to manhattan just started running, but there are still no trains running below 34th street where half of manhattan remains in the dark. so the millions of new yorkers who depend on subways, they're now waiting in those long lines for buses. for those
've seen this before. in 2000, karl rove said, george w. bush was going to win california. they spent millions and millions of dollars on advertising there. they sent bush out there, precious time, near the end of the campaign. i said, tad devine, carter, those of us involved in that campaign, so we're not spending one dime in california, and gore won the state by 1.3 million votes. the wish can't become father to the reality, which is what's going on here. >> like a team trying to talk their way to a championship instead of playing the game, so to speak. shouldn't romney have florida wrapped up? >> he should. he has a lot of -- there, he has structural advantages because he's got the governor and virtually all the statewide officials. but i think the medicare, and the republicans like to say, oh, we've countered it with this lie about a $716 billion cut under obama care, when in fact there is no such cut. there's no cut in benefits. i think that seniors have figured out two things. one, romney wants to replace medicare with voucher care. they don't like it. but isn't it the latino an
ceo of ebay, meg whitman, in california spent $125 million of her own fortune and it didn't work. she lost the governorship to jerry brown who obviously spent a lot less. because you're spending this money doesn't mean that you're persuading voters to your point of view. >> to your point, we have an ad which is from americans for prosperity which imagines a future world in which china dominates the united states. it's a pretty ugly ad. >> yes. >> but it's also dumb. if you look at the front page of the "new york times" today, there's a story that says all the highly skilled people in china are actually leaving to go elsewhere. so it seems like a dumb ad in the likes of that analysis. >> plus, to offend your largest creditor, which clearly it's offensive as well and borderline racist -- >> zen o phobia never hurt some of these organizations. >> there's no reason to offend your largest creditor. we need to work with the chinese, we need to work with the japanese, we need to work with all the people who are financing our massive debt and not offend them in any way. >> many of our viewers
years of debilitating gridlock. joining us from oakland is democratic senator from california barbara boxer. senator boxer, pleasure to have you on the show. >> nice to be on your show. >> senator, you know, we've talked about the makeup of the next senate and some early prognosticators are saying, the actual power shift in terms of seats held won't change that much, but you may end up seeing a more liberal democratic caucus in the upper chamber just by virtue of who the folks coming in are and believe. i call -- the race between joe donnelly and richard mourdock, mourdock was supposed to have this butnd up. the seat may go to donnelly. chris murphy replacing joe lieberman and tammy baldwin may replace herb in wisconsin. what does that mean in terms of the caucus and animating policies of the democratic caucus and the upper chamber? >> i think this focus on liberal and conservative misses the entire point. the question is, are we going to come together, meet each other half way and make sure this economic recovery continues? these are the big issues facing us in this election and the
of southern california. one of them is in critical condition. the shooting reportedly happened at a halloween party and authorities have two people in custody. >>> "washington post" reports that the obama administration has been in talks to build a new syrian opposition leadership to stop the violence from spreading across the middle east. the plan is also intended to prevent radical islamic fighters from taking control of the opposition group. >>> in south carolina, income tax returns were targeted in the largest cyber attack against the state tax department in american history. more than three million social security numbers were compromised along with more than a million businesses and personal credit and debit cards. >>> the new world series of poker champion is a 24-year-old recovering drug addict and college dropout. greg mercen is from maryland. he won almost 399 hands of texas hold em collecting more than $8.5 million and that piece of bling, a gold championship bracelet worth about $150,000. must be nice. >>> now here's a look at how wall street begins this thursday. the dow closed a
and california and some of the other blue states. that's part of why the national polls might not be that great an indicator. >> these national states haven't seen the advertising, haven't seen the campaigning, haven't seen the targeted messaging. that's where the president's team has built the operation that they think will allow them to go from tied nationally to a little bit of an advantage. >> it depends which poll you look at. most of them show mitt romney has a lead among independents. if you're the romney campaign is that your reason for optimism tonight and tomorrow? >> three reasons to be optimistic. one is in a lot of polls, they're doing betting with independents. in a state like ohio, the candidate who wins independents usually wins. david axelrod such as much on the show last week. an incumbent below 50% at 47%, 48%, you have to think you might lose. and third is, ever reporter who's been out in the last week with the candidates has seen there's a lot of enthusiasm on the republican side. i'm not saying there's not enthusiasm for the president. there is. it's not at the level of 20
this closely. when i've spoken to people in texas, i've spoken to people in california, they're all focused on this story. seeing the president in the role of president does have an impact on some undecided voters, i think. i think that there was that leadership role which he managed to fulfill, and he fulfilled it well. >> it's just an awkward situation for the romney campaign. since sandy made landfall earlier this week, we mentioned fema. mitt romney has been facing questions about his plans for funding fema and disaster response. something he suggested turning back to the states during a debate last year. attempting to clarify the position, the romney campaign released a statement reading in part, quote, this. i believe that fema plays a key role in working with states and localities to prepare for and respond to natural disasters. as president, i will ensure fema has the funding it needs to fulfill its mission, while directing maximum resources to first responders who work tirelessly to help those in need because states and localities are in the best position to get aid to the individu
the 2000 election when he said -- promised reporters, swore to us that he was going to win california, taking 320 votes in the electoral college. >> the same karl rove? >> the karl rove math. >> michelle, while romney has gone ugly and negative and he has a new ad out and uses the endorsement of colin powell. take a listen. >> will you endorse president obama? >> yes. when he took over we were in one of the worst recessions we had seen in recent times, close to a depression. and i saw, over the next several years, stabilization come back in the final community. housing is starting to pick up. the president saved the auto industry. >> so he's touting his record. he has a are republican colin powell touting his record. he's going positive in the -- in light of all of this ugliness. >> he is, although if you listen to the radio ads that are around in virginia, which is a big swing state, he also has some groups out there who are doing something akin to what the republicans are doing. not to quite the same degree but scaring people about health care and guy rights and stuff like that. but
.m. and then 1:00 a.m., we'll have california, hawaii, idaho, oregon, washington, and then the last poll closing in alaska. unless this is a very strange night, those races will be interesting for governors races and senate and house races and state issues, but not necessarily for the presidency. unless things go very, very differently than expected to go. this is how your election viewing is going to unfold hour by hour on tuesday night. if you just exclude the states for the presidential race where everybody pretty much knows exactly how it's going to go and just the states where there is some question as to what's going to happen, here is a clip and save thing for you about these states. the battlegrounds. all right? states that you know are going to be important and everybody thinks they're going to be close. these are the states everybody is going to be watching on tuesday night. each of these states, as you know, has a top elections official. and each of these states has a top elections official who is a partisan. who is either a democrat or a republican. and in a democracy, that should me
in california. no secret service, no advisers, and no words on whether he used regular or premium. romney thought he'd be on the road to the white house by now. instead, he's just on the road. meanwhile, the president is heading home on air force one after meeting with world leaders. he didn't pump the gas for that plane. here's the point. elections have consequences. the american people rejected romney's right wing views. but a lot of republicans didn't get the message. bill o'reilly is still defending romney's claim that the president won because of gifts to minorities. >> again, that's the truth. it is a stone cold fact that lower income americans, largely, re-elected president obama. now, the left is going to scream when you say that because they don't want to acknowledge the economics of the vote. liberals want to see themselves as noble. they don't want to consider the fact that entitlements buy votes. >> hear that? over at fox romney's right arm. and there's a lot of other republicans who are also drawing the wrong lessons from romney's defeat. they say he lost because he was not c
for a minute in the battleground states. what about california? if part of you can't get 45% of the vote, much above 40% of the vote in california is not a party about the future. >> and blaming chris christie is exactly maybe what's wrong with the party. you tell me. he should step above it. but can he? >> i think there are a lot of republicans that need to fight back. and you look at this party, jon meacham, this party has lost 5 out of the last 6 elections when it comes to the popular vote. and they had a great victory two years ago, but the same thing happened in 1994. look historically, jon. 1992, bill clinton, a new democrat wins. two years later rejected by a republican revolution. two years later, re-elected. the same thing has happened again. by republicans who have won. republicans won an historic landslide. we were here two years ago. a lot of unhappy democrats. two years later, they're seen as overreaching and rejected by the american people. >> democrats have shown a greater capacity of the modern era to learn from adversity. and the '94 example is the great one. president bush, i
. >> and i have nevada in there. you live on the border of nevada and california. demographically gone for the republicans right now? >> this is a state that republicans should have won if we had the same hispanic turnout of the vote percentage under president bush, under john mccain. mitt romney would be ahead in nevada. it's not the case. president obama is going to win nevada. >> anybody here think the president will lose iowa? >> i think he's going to win iowa. and i changed my opinion on that. i thought he was going to lose iowa. >> you believe iowa. where do you fall? >> the president. >> look what this does here. this puts -- we put it up to 259 so th so then he's is 11 away. anybody thinks he's going to win florida? so you give romney this, florida. colorado, i think it will be the closest state in the country. >> i agree. >> where does it go? >> romney. >> romney wins. >> really close but romney. >> it might all come down to ohio. >> it may. and virginia we have sitting he here. so this could mean to me as a realistic scenario and i won't make you force these, hiohio, virginia

in southern california. >> what did haley barbour say about jim jeffords in vermont? >> again, during this presidential process when i was asking olympia snowe or asking a candidate about olympia snowe, are you glad she's in your party? he wouldn't answer. >> right. >> and then we asked haley who said, "hell, yeah. i'm glad olympia snowe is in our party and i wish jim jeffords was, too." even on his most liberal day, jim jeffords was going to get elected more than anybody in vermont. >> do you think -- what's the time frame here? is it that the republican party has perhaps a year and a half to sort of figure out what direction they're going to head in? a year and a half before the leaders of the republican party go to the front window of the club that they belong to, open up the drapes and look out on main street and see the reality of life in america today? >> this happens all the time. i mean, i remember getting elected in 1994. you know, "u.s. news & world report" had a cover talking about the end of the democratic party. you remember 1980. >> yeah, yeah. >> people were saying the

. if this is the case, you're right, he better move on. thai, mayor brown of california -- san francisco. ashley, thanks for coming on. >>> it's not business, it's personal. that public dispute between john mccain and president obama over susan rice. could it be mccain hasn't gotten over the 2008 election. we're sort of stacking up revenge here on the other side. i got nothing more to say about that. >>> plus spy fall, what we're learning about the affair that brought down the cia chief and perhaps derailed the promoths of the top general. besides complaining about how president obama won re-election by giving away gifts to minorities and young voters, wonder what mitt romney has been doing since the election? david letterman has an idea. >> today mitt romney drew a picture of the house of representatives chamber and gave a state of the union address in front of it. >> and the fourth new entitlement, obama care, we'd repeal that one. >> we have a few more of those sugar plums in the "sideshow." >>> plet me finish with a book about when we had a hero for a president. this is "hardball," the place for pol
. the fact that the court will have before it the whole issue of proposition from california and the issue of same-sex, it always has the potential to go after roe v. wade. we have three or four justices now in their 70s, one in poor health. it seems to me hard to argue that the next president, if it's the same president or the next president, are going to have an opportunity to pick supreme court nominees, and they will have an impact on roe v. wade it seems to me. >> across a range of issues, chris. i don't want to diminish roe v. wade but you pointed out the gay rights decisions. there are a lot of race decisions before the court on affirmative action and other race related matters. all social policy. there isn't a more important branch of government when it comes to social policy than the supreme court. it's always true. it's almost the single biggest thing that's at stake in any presidential election and this one particularly because the age of the justices, as you pointed out. the next president might get to appoint three supreme court justices in the next four years and that could a
